The Weight of One Day

I want to have something to say about this day; and I guess I do. I have too much to say. And too much to feel; too much rage, and too much sadness.

Rage at the politicians and pastors who drive a wedge in our humanity, pitting people against people. Rage at extremists, of all kinds, all over the world.

Sadness for the families of the victims, who feel it ever more sharply than anyone else. Sadness for our country, embroiled in disgusting hatred and partisanship. Sadness for the world, which just can't seem to get its fucking act together. It's all just, sad. And I don't know how to fix it.

We are living in the Dark Ages. And our world is a hard, hard place.
